International drug thriller
11 June 2011 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

This East German movie was co-produced with studios in Hungary and Yugoslavia, with many interesting location shots (border checkpoint to West Berlin, the Gellert bath in Budapest, and more). The plot is about French drug dealers, who obtain heroin somewhere in the Middle East, and smuggle it in several steps to East Berlin, and from there to France (or so it appears), killing when necessary. The hero is an officer of East German customs, who with detective work, some masquerade, and occasional violent action ultimately unravels the whole network, of course with the support of the local customs departments.

The film is produced in wide-screen, but black and white only, which is a pity, and might have become darker over time. The soundtrack is acceptable, with music typical of thrillers in the 1960s. Eva-Maria Hagen is one actress whose name I am aware of, and she played the Hungarian air hostess decently. I found the Yugoslav girl more intense though, but don't see her listed in the credits.

All in all, an interesting viewing experience. I wasn't on the edge of my seat, but not disappointed either :)
